08:23 AM ET 10.02 | There is no bigger star in the NHL -- at least not in stature. The agent for Zdeno Chara said [Monday] morning that the Bruins captain's search for a European team is starting to get a little more serious. "He's looking at all his options. He may stay here, but right now I think he's leaning toward playing (in Europe). We'll probably have a decision within a week," said Matt Keator. Chara played in Sweden during the lockout of 2004-05, but right now the top league there is not allowing NHL players to sign contracts with an escape clause in the event the NHL lockout ends during the season. There are other options such as the Czech Republic, Germany or Russia.

At first glance I thought it was another Kadri thread.

Nope. Kadri is the AHL's biggest star. And, Gomez is the ECHL's biggest....um....star.

Now that it's been brought up, don't the Habs have to be a tad bit pleased that they aren't paying Gomez for at least a little while?

They probably are hoping on a career ending injury to happen

Possibly. Tho any pleasure derived from that must be tempered by the fact that he's still on their team. :)

I always called him 'the ostrich' what he looks like going up and down the ice.

There's a lot of teams that could use a lummox like Chara.

I clipped a filing cabinet the other day leaving my office. It was about as big and as mobile as Chara. It hurt and knocked me almost down.

I sort of attribute it to me not seeing an immovable object bigger than I and not easily avoiding it.
